hawaii tonight to come back to d.c. let's speak to a republican from florida. congresswoman, you played a big role in getting a marine out of a nightmarish prison in mexico and back to his family for christmas. first, i want to ask you about the fiscal cliff and what's happening in the next couple of days. first, do you think it's possible we'll get anything other than a band-aid between now and six days from now when the triggers kick in? >> i'm very optimistic if all of us pull our weight and do some serious conversations we'll have a bipartisan solution, because nobody wants to go over this fiscal cliff. it will damage our economy. it will hurt every taxpayer, the largest tax increase in history. it will affect everybody, and anyone who is watching who thinks, oh this isn't going to impact me, you will fin out d o will, and we know the problem is a lot of spending. not that we're not taxing people more, we're just spending too much. we hope that the president understands that as for as republicans are concerned, we're willing to negotiate and have a civil conversation, but also he's
keilar joins us live from honolulu, hawaii. so a slight bit of news. do tell. >> reporter: i hesitate to even say it's a slight bit of news because it's sort of exactly what we would expect, to be honest. the white house is talking about senate democrats about what senate majority leader harry reid will have to cobble together when the senate reconvenes on the 27th and that's really the last-ditch effort. it's seen as the senate trying to do something that can also pass the house, so this is exactly what you would expect. the real problem though is as of this morning, just a week out from when the fiscal cliff is expected to hit. there's no discussions between congressional democrats and congressional republicans even on the staff level. this is what democratic and republican sources are telling me, and overall just to remind people, instead of this being -- here's what we expect. instead of this being some big bill to try to deal with the long-term fiscal health of the country which is what the fiscal cliff was supposed to be an incentive to do, we're expecting now that this is just
to hawaii. he never followed through on that. instead police say he put a hockey mask on and headed toward the clackamas town center mall on tuesday afternoon. ended up killing a dedicated hospice nurse and respected former radio executive. critically wounded a 15-year-old girl before he finally committed suicide. it all brings us right to dan simon. he's live from suburban portland this morning. what else do we know about jacob roberts? >> reporter: well, good morning, soledad. his name surfaced less than 24 hours ago so it's still a bit early in the investigation. but the things that you would typically look at, his family life, you know, where he works, his relationships, haven't seen really any obvious signs. investigators say they haven't found a criminal history, no violent past. so at this point things don't really add up. people have been trying to look at his facebook page, esee if there are any clues there. there is a piece of artwork on his facebook page saying follow your dreams. the word "cancelled" stamped over it. could that suggest anything? at this point we don't know that
, hawaii, this morning. i'm talking to republican and democratic sources and they really feel like we're going to go over the cliff. what are you hearing? >> i'm hearing it's a very real possibility, and as you're hearing, they aren't even really talking, democrats and reyou public i had cans, the white house talks to senate democrats, but at this point, the white house is not in any real substan tiff conversations with both house republicans and senate republicans as all eyes turn to the senate, and perhaps because of that, some of the pessimism you heard from senator liberman there is shared by replicans. listen. >> when i listen to the president, i think the president is eager to go over the cliff for political purposes. i think he sees a political victory at the bottom of the cliff. gets additional tax revenue for new programs, gets to cut the military and blame republicans for it. >> attention now turns to the senate which will reconvene on thursday. the 27th. house majority leader harry reid now has the task of trying to cobble something together that could perhaps pass the sena
died. senator daniel inouye represented hawaii from the day it became a state in 1959. he was 88. suffered from respiratory problems. shaken majority leader harry reid addressed colleagues yesterday. >> i have never known anyone like dan inouyue, no one else has. the kindness he has shown me for my time here in the senate has been something i will cherish always. >> senator inouye, second longest serving member ever behind robert byrd of west virginia. >>> newtown high school football coach steven george never expected a response when he left a message on a white board for president obama the president visited newtown on sunday. coach george and another teacher left a note on the white board in advance, thanking him for coming. they weren't sure the commander in chief would see it, but he did. the coach's note read, dear president obama the newtown community is so thankful that are every are you coming to help us heal. in times of adversity, it is reassuring to know that we have a strong leader to help us recover. the president wrote a note back on this white board. it said simpl
